Professional Wine Reviews for Domaine Bruno Clair Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers Pinot Noir 2014

Rated 93 by Robert Parker
The 2014 Gevrey Chambertin 1Er Cru Cazetiers has a wonderful bouquet with mineral-rich black and red fruit; it is very focused and animated at first and then, with just a few swirls, it calms down and becomes very composed and refined. The palate is medium-bodied with candied orange peel and a smudge of vanilla on the entry. There is a core of blood orange at the center of this Cazetiers and though there is still some oak to be absorbed, it should evolve into a winning Gevrey-Chambertin.
Rated 92 by Decanter
Bright medium red. Cool, slightly medicinal aromas of cherry, raspberry and menthol. Densely packed, suave and seamless, with distinctly darker flavors than the Petite Chapelle. Best today on the building, perfumed back end, which shows considerable class and an impression of weightlessness. (Vinous)

Winery Domaine Bruno Clair

Varietal: Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir grapes have been cultivated in and around the Burgundy region of France for centuries, where they have long been favored by vintners for their wide range of flavors, their thin skins and for producing wines which have light, smooth tannins, and a beautiful garnet red color Whilst they remain one of the flagship varietals of this special region, their wide popularity and recent status as a fashionable 'romantic' varietal has led to them being planted in almost every wine producing country in the world. However, the Pinot Noir demands a huge amount of care and attention from the wineries that wish to grow it, as this varietal is particularly susceptible to various forms of mildew and rot. Despite this, the grape is otherwise a favorite with wineries for the fact that it requires little extra effort once it begins fermentation. Pinot Noir is also widely known for producing some of the world's most famous sparkling wines, being one of two key grapes for the production of Champagne, and several other sparkling varieties.

Region: Burgundy

There are few more famous wine regions in the world than Burgundy, and this special area has given much to raise the profile of fine French wines around the world. Although most commonly associated with excellent quality red wines made with the Pinot Noir varietal, this region is home to several red and white varietals and produces and impressive range of wines, from still to sparkling, dry to sweet, full bodied and aged, and from to light and drinkable. The region of Burgundy has been producing excellent wines for centuries, with much evidence to suggest that the ancient Gauls were the first to cultivate the native vines which flourish here in the warm summers, and on the excellent soil fed by local rivers. This type of heritage has led to a wine industry highly unique, deeply traditional, and with an exquisite reputation to uphold.

Country: France

It is widely understood and accepted that the finest wines in the world come out of France. Whether you are drinking a vintage bottle from one of the famed Grand Cru wineries of Bordeaux - such as Chateau Margaux or Chateau Lafite-Rothschild - or a more simple and affordable bottle from one of the lesser known appellations in Burgundy, the likelihood is that the wine is packed full of intense and interesting flavors, and has a fine, balanced structure typical of almost all French produce. This reputation for excellence is taken extremely serious by the French, with dozens of regularly updated laws and regulations ensuring the quality and accurate labeling of wines. Such dedication and passion for fine wine, representative of the region in which it is produced, means customers can be assured that when they buy a bottle from France, they are buying something almost certain to please and delight.
